2020 Sangria 5K Dash

Hawthorne, FL

Join us for our Island Grove Wine Company 5th Annual Sangria 5K Dash and Fall Festival on Saturday,  Nov 14th, 2020.  The Sangria 5K Dash will benefit the Heart of Florida Youth Ranch. The Ranch is a home for children who have nowhere to go and have suffered loss of parenting due to abandonment, abuse, neglect or death.  The majority of their needs are provided by donations.  Please help us help the kids!

You have the option to register for the Sangria 5K Dash as an on-site or virtual participant.  Information on the virtual option is located at the bottom of the page.

The Sangria 5K Dash and Fall Festival will be at our winery and at our beautiful on-property authentic cracker house where we will have music, vendors and food along with winery tours and wine tastings!  

However, your health is important to us and should the COVID-19 make a resurgence, the race will become virtual. We will follow state and county mandates and will try our best to make a decision by September 14th as to whether the race will be on site or only virtual.


The race will start promptly at 8:30am and begin and end at our historic 1897 cracker house, taking you through our beautiful Florida property and blueberry plantation.  With your registration, you will receive a Sangria 5K Dash Dry Zone shirt, a celebratory glass of sangria for those 21 and over (Gatorade for those younger) and an outrageous Custom Sangria 5k Dash medal (see below)!

Course Description:

Off road trail run through our blueberry farm and wooded areas surrounding the farm. The paths are mostly packed, with a portion of the run on softer dirt roads leading to the wooded areas. Portions of the race are in full sun and some are shaded.

This is the woods - there are bugs and dirt. Please plan accordingly and bring bug spray and sunscreen, it will not be provided.

Pushing a stroller will be an extra workout and difficult, please be prepared.

Pets are permitted as long as they are on a leash and you clean up after them.
